With the second season of his DreamWorks/Netflix series Trollhunters getting underway on Dec. 15, the filmmaker is announcing plans to expand the universe to include two other animated shows: the alien saga 3 Below and the magic-mystery adventure Wizards.
As you can see from the clip above, local teen conspiracy theorist Eli Pepperjack (voiced by Cole Sand) is explaining to sidekick extraordinaire Toby Domzalski (Charlie Saxton) that not only is their town of Arcadia a hotbed of subterranean troll activity, but it has connections to these other supernatural realms as well.
“The idea was to create three interconnecting series that shared a mythology,” del Toro explained before introducing a clip that sets up the trilogy.
“DreamWorks 3 Below” will bow on Netflix next year and will follow a pair of teenage royals and their bodyguard hiding on Earth after a surprise coup drives them from their home planet. They’re forced to try and blend into the strange new world while trying to repair their damaged ship so they can return and fight for their home planet.
